BS, I've had a AD, and it was not negligent on my part.
My M-240H failed to fully re-cock after a test fire while in OIF. The gun later fired, without being touched by anyone and with the safety engaged.
Tell me, how is that ND? I did everything exactly as per the manual of arms, and many other soldiers experienced the same issue, which lead to the US military no longer issuing British 7.62x51mm because our 240's and their FN MAG's are set up slightly different, and that difference was causing AD's across the theater.
To the OP, the easy way to make snap caps out of a previously fired brass, is to drill out the primer pocket, and thread the hole. After you've got it threaded, screw in a white plastic screw, and viola snap cap. Its how I make snap caps for my exotic calibers (9.3x74R 416 Rigby etc)
